New York-based WeWork is taking more than 96,000 square feet at 660 J St. in downtown Sacramento. The deal with the co-working company would rank as the region’s largest so far this year.
WeWork is set to occupy the top three floors at a more than 100,000-square-foot mixed-use building owned by the Sacramento Kings and JMA Ventures LLC in 2021. The four-story building is located within the 630,000-square-foot urban redevelopment that encompasses Downtown Commons (DOCO) and Golden 1 Center.
WeWork’s Elton Kwok says, “With co-led events and experiences between members and Kings fans, we truly hope to create a campus for the future, where each partner is truly invested in the experiences that happen within that community in a way that’s accessible, meaningful and fun.”
Cushman & Wakefield’s Ron Thomas represented both parties in the lease negotiations.
